New judge Harry Connick Jr. cemented his role as tough-to-please truth teller on "American Idol" on Thursday night, as the auditions returned to Austin for a second night and then moved on to San Francisco. "This is tough because it's a perfect story," he told 15-year-old hopeful Tristen Langley, who'd brought his mother, "Idol" Season 1 third-place finisher Nikki McKibbin, to his audition. She stood nearby, mouthing the words as he sang a so-so "Santeria. " "I just think if mom weren't here and the story weren't here, I can guarantee you it wouldn't work for me. " Jennifer Lopez, who had gushed about the "crazy" history being made -- "We're a second generation 'Idol' already!"

Obviously I'm not going to change Robert Hilburn's mind about the "American Idol" concert ("No Pedestals for 'Idol,' " Oct. 10), but keep in mind that Kelly Clarkson won the competition, and her single has gone to No. 1 faster than anyone else's in recent music history. There is a reason why Kelly won, and that is talent. Her talent might be crude and unrefined, but it is talent nonetheless. I know she will get better in time. Richard Payne Tulare How dare you diss the performances of these kids.
